Just to clarify, there's no bitchin on the pilot, he certainly knew very well the terrain has i have mentioned on the post. Just curious to hear from others on different situation manner..


Friends of mine and many others have seen worst than that on big fires..


I wouldn't be very comfortable flying in that kind of soup, nor appreciate this kind of ops either, as my level of experience would make it a nightmare for me and the pax.
